IdleComputer V2.1

See original article for full description Force NAS Computer to Sleep when idle

This version makes it more suited to NAS only use (with ‘Ignore Keyboard and Mouse’ on) and a work computer with the setting off.  This will probably be the final version unless there are feature requests.

As the monitored IP could change by DHCP, it is probably best to reserve the IP on the router, the computer then always gets the same IP Address. On the device list on the EE Smarthub turn on ‘Always use this IP address’, most routers have something similar.

Monitoring Tab, Keyboard, Mouse Ignored on.
Settings Tab, new Ignore Keyboard, and Mouse Option

New Features

  • Ignore the keyboard/mouse, this makes it work better on a NAS.


  • Added new footer bar that will be in all my new programs.


Windows 10 (Should work on 7/8/8.1) and .net 4 runtime
